College basketball scores: No. 21 Memphis' late push topples No. 7 Louisville, 72-66

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

The Tigers overcame a monster game from Montrezl Harrell and a 1-for-11 shooting performance from Shaq Goodwin to knock off the conference-leading Cardinals.

The American Athletic Conference delivered another classic game, with No. 21 Memphis surging past No. 7 Louisville, 72-66, on Saturday. The Tigers allowed 15 offensive rebounds, but were efficient enough on offense to get the win.

Four Memphis players scored in double digits, led by Michael Dixon Jr.'s 18 points. The Tigers shot 49 percent as a team, limiting Louisville to just 39.7 percent.

Montrezl Harrell and Russ Smith carried the Cardinals, who led with as little as three minutes left. Harrell finished with 25 points and 12 rebounds, including a series of high-flying dunks:

Louisville failed to take advantage of Cincinnati's loss to UConn. The Cardinals remain in a tie atop the AAC standings with the Bearcats. Two games remain on the regular-season slate.

No. 2 Wichita State 68, Missouri State 45

The Shockers finished the regular season undefeated, running the table in the Missouri Valley Conference. Wichita State is the first school to enter tournament season with an undefeated record since UNLV in 1991.

Cleanthony Early scored 19 points, leading all scorers. The Shockers will enter the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament as heavy favorites, and may do the same for the Big Dance. It's been a great year for Wichita State, no matter what happens in postseason play.

Connecticut 51, No. 11 Cincinnati 45

The Huskies pulled off an upset of conference-leading Cincinnati. Shabazz Napier recorded a double-double, grabbing 11 rebounds to go along with his game-high 18 points.

The Bearcats live and die with their star, Sean Kilpatrick, who was off-the-mark on Saturday. The senior scored 16 points but shot just 4-for-16 from the field. Head coach Mark Cronin blew a few more gaskets than usual in frustration with his team's performance on offense:

With Louisville losing to Memphis, Cincinnati stays tied atop the American Athletic Conference standings.

No. 19 North Carolina 60, Virginia Tech 56

The Tar Heels won their 11th straight game, improving to 12-4 in ACC play. This was a tight one, though, as the Hokies hung around on their home floor. North Carolina gave one of its most balanced performances, with four players scoring at least nine points in the game.

James Michael McAdoo had 15 points, while Leslie McDonald chipped in 14. J.P. Tokoto did this:

The Tar Heels can't win the ACC, but are gaining steam heading into post-season play.
